The society takes an active role in reviewing and commenting on planning applications in Sandgate submitted to Folkestone & Hythe District Council and considered by Sandgate Parish Council.

The revised Sandgate Design Statement 2020 (SDS) (click here) details a series of design principles to be used by developers and for planners to reference when considering individual planning applications. The SDS aims to ensure Sandgate village’s diverse building and landscape heritage is not compromised and any new developments and building alterations enhance this environment.

The Sandgate Design Statement is a ‘supplementary planning document’ and a ‘material consideration’ in considering planning applications.

To search for local planning applications use the Folkestone & Hythe District Council planning portal (click here).
